“Loeki de Leeuw” (Loeki the Lion) is celebrating his fiftieth birthday this year! For years, the films of the somewhat clumsy yet charming Loeki were shown in between commercials on television. He quickly conquered the hearts of many Dutch people with his films. The Royal Dutch Mint mints three exclusive issues in honour of the favourite lion of the Netherlands. The Loeki de Leeuw coincard also contains a shiny 50 euro cents to emphasize the anniversary!
Loeki de Leeuw
The most famous lion in the Netherlands, created by Joop Geesink, was first seen on television in January 1972. Loeki soon became a Dutch icon. From 1984, daughter Louise Geesink took over from her father and became the owner of Loeki. After 7,000 clips, the “Ster” (the foundation that regulates advertising for Dutch public broadcasters) stopped with the Loeki films in 2004. However, the funny lion could still be admired in the theme park Efteling, where he played a role in the Carnival Festival ride for many years. In 2021 Loeki returned to television and can be seen regularly between the commercials of the Ster.
Cheerful Loeki Coincard Including 50 Cents
The issue is entirely dedicated to birthday boy Loeki. The lion can be seen proudly beaming on the obverse. The reverse shows the logo of Loeki de Leeuw with the anniversary years 1972-2022. The issue is packed in a cheerful coincard with a festive Loeki. He is delighted to show his own issue and a Dutch 50 euro cents from 2022. The face value emphasizes the anniversary. On the reverse of the coincard you will see a compilation of Loeki comics. You don't want to miss this issue in your collection!
